Garlic Whipped Potatoes

Mashed potatoes and gravy.

Usually, when I make mashed potatoes, they look something like the picture above. This time around, I wanted to make them extra smooth so Dino could eat them with his sore jaw. I peeled and cut a bunch of potatoes into cubes and boiled them with 2 cloves of garlic and a bay leaf in salted water until the potatoes were tender. I drained the water off and used an immersion blender to make them silky smooth. I thinned them with some chicken stock (I figured this would also add a nice amount of flavor, since Dino wasn’t going to be able to eat solid foods for a while), added in a little butter, and seasoned them up with salt and pepper. They were really good! I forgot to take a photo of them, but I’ll definitely use this method again.
